Whether you are visiting Milwaukee for the first time or are a repeat visitor, there is much to see and do—and yes, eat and drink—while you are in town for the MAALL, LLAW, MichALL, MALL, and CALL Joint Annual Meeting. From breweries and distilleries to architecture and museums, including the Milwaukee Art Museum with its Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion (just blocks from the hotel) and the Harley-Davidson Museum, opportunities to keep busy before and after conference activities are varied. The conference overlaps Milwaukee’s Gallery Night & Day, described as “Milwaukee's two-day premier art event for both the experienced art connoisseur and most beginning admirer.” Learn more at http://historicthirdward.org/events/gallerynight.php.
View our interactive map for information about several local attractions, restaurants, and more, and look in your conference bag for an Official Visitor’s Guide, Milwaukee Map, and Experience Milwaukee booklet with discounts for select area restaurants, retail, and attractions. (Pardon our dust! Construction is underway on several downtown streets for a streetcar network, set to begin service next fall.)
Saturday’s events will take place at the Marquette University Law School at 1215 W. Michigan St., Milwaukee, WI 53233, about 1 mile west of the hotel. Visitor Parking will be available on both the 11th Street level and the Clybourn level of the Eckstein Hall Underground Parking Structure (7a and 7b, respectively, on campus map). From the Marriott, take Wisconsin Avenue west and turn south on 11th. There are two left turn lanes at 11th Street. Do not choose the far-left lane, which directs you onto the freeway. Enter the parking structure from 11th Street between Wisconsin Avenue and Clybourn Avenue (Clybourn is also called Tory Hill in this area). If the 11th Street level is full, please go past the 7a parking entrance and turn right onto Clybourn (Tory Hill); the entrance to the Clybourn level (7b) will be on your right just past the building. The parking gates will be raised, and there is no need to pull a ticket, obtain validation, or deposit a ticket prior to exiting on Saturday. Take the stairs or elevator to the 1st Floor level to enter the building. Please wear your conference badge. (You can take Michigan Street west from the hotel to the Law School, but if you are driving must either turn north to connect to Wisconsin Avenue at or before 10th Street or will be limited to parking on the Clybourn level. 11 Street is one-way southbound.)
Shuttle transportation to and from the Law School for Saturday’s sessions will be available.
Flying into Milwaukee? Consider the GO Riteway Shuttle Service. Book online at https://www.goriteway.com/ or call 1-800-236-5450. GO Riteway recommends making reservations in advance. One-way travel to or from the Marriott or Marquette should be about $15. Estimated cab fare from the airport to the hotel is $25 (one way). Uber and Lyft both operate from the airport, as well, and the Milwaukee County Transit System connects the airport to downtown by bus. For more information, view Ground Transportation options on the the airport’s website. Taking the train to Milwaukee? The downtown Intermodal Station is less than one mile from the hotel.
Visit Park Milwaukee to explore parking options if you do not intend to use valet parking at the hotel. The site identifies several “preferred parking facilities” in the vicinity of the Marriott, some of which offer discounted “Early in” options. These include the 411 Annex, just south of the Marriott. For those staying overnight, parking near the Intermodal Station (Amtrak) may be another option if you do not mind the .8 mile walk or an Uber/Lyft/cab ride (pardon the construction).
